Here are 5 ways to make money from your sports obsession, without needing to maintain peak fitness.

Sport betting site

To start an online gaming business, you need professional iGaming software; a gambling licence; a merchant account, and a dedicated server. Look for flexible, fully customisable software solutions that allow you to control the entire process from design to post-launch.

You can choose a white-label solution that allows you to lease the software, gaming licence and payment processing system and operate your own casino under an established turnkey infrastructure.

Decide what software platform you will use on your site, for example, popular casino games, a live module, and in-play sports betting and your site could be given with the best sportsbooks ratings by the experts. Decide what additional features you want, for example real-time chat rooms, bonus creation options or tournament play. A reliable gaming provider can help you integrate all the necessary content under a smooth website interface.

Sell Sports Memorabilia

Rare sports memorabilia can easily fetch thousands at auction, yet more common memorabilia can still be turned for a profit, if obtained at a good price. Search flea markets, thrift shops, yard sales, auctions and storage sales. Learning as much as you can about your sport will give you an advantage. If you find a signed item, gaining verification will make it much easier to sell on for profit.

Run a Fantasy League Site

A fantasy league site can raise you money from advertising, a recurring monthly fee and affiliate products/tickets. If done well, including offering perks to members, you can generate a large loyal following and income as well.

Sports Photography

Sports photography is big business, but cut-throat. Take photos of the sports stars off the pitch/rink/court, and sell those on to sports magazines and websites.

Sports Blog

Take your knowledge and write about your favourite sports on a blog. Not only can you shape the content to match your views and opinions, but you will be able to reach a large fan base that shares (or hates) your opinion. You can easily monetize the website with adverts, membership options and affiliate marketing.
